She was able to wear the Medley's heirloom gown along with a James Avery silver cross from Tante. The gown is the same delicate treasure that Davis wore three years ago. Mimi and Pops gave her some ivory satin booties with ribbon tie that matched beautifully. These are on the wall in her room now as a keepsake. I regret not getting a picture of these or of her in her gown by herself prior to the ceremony but it was slightly chaotic that morning.
We arrived at home to mimosas and hot coffee while Chef Stacey was whipping up a delish brunch. What at treat. The McLachlins also joined us at home. We enjoyed our mimosas while appetizing on salmon, cream cheese with vinaigrette on cucumber before our brunch. The food was amazing including two frittatas, roasted fingerling potatoes, fruit salad with mint, quinoa salad and lemon bundt cake to finish. It was so nice to be able to visit, eat and enjoy this meal with everyone. She even cleaned up the kitchen. We were in a food coma after but finished the day swimming and having dinner at the Hyatt where Mimi and Pops were staying for the weekend. It was such a memorable day and we are beyond grateful for those family members who traveled so far to be here and for all those sweet thoughts and gifts from our family afar.
